I am Potential is an after school mentoring program with a unique approach for inner city youth
I am Potential connects North End junior high youth with university and college student volunteers each week on campus for recreation, a meal, and fun hands-on learning projects. This year we are partnering with Dalhousie and NSCC for projects in medicine, dentistry, engineering, metal fabrication, culinary and automotive repair. Our idea grew out of the conviction that a bright future is possible for kids in our city, including those from lower income neighbourhoods, if they can get a post-secondary education and have positive adult role models involved in their lives. Because of our work many young people in our community are being introduced to the dream of post-secondary education.
